Get Lucky in the Ad World
Megan Nuttall:

Leticia describes [that] being in the advertising industry [is] like dating.

Kiwi had its first meeting. Aww… by Bryan Davidson.

The interns make the program their own
Mason West:

Moving entirely on their own, the interns came to a consensus that it would be better to pool their resources while researching Sameunderneath, than to spend time and energy in redundant competition.

Things Happen
Heather Schwartz:

I could look at this situation in two ways… is the glass half empty or half full? And you know what, I’m a glass half full kind of girl.

CoLab week 2 realizations
Kim Karalekas:

[…] the one thing I continue to think about is the importance of finding the right match between individual and agency.

Good night.

COLABORATORY Round Up: Day 7 And An Open Invitation To Beer And Blog

Almost nothing was happening by way of “serious” COLABORATORY writing this Sunday.

This, until Allison McKeever, one of the most prolific intern bloggers (disclosure: she is also one of our writers) decided to post pictures from ASCENTIUM, a review of Lattice’s first Friday work session and a research trip to the Sameunderneath store in Mississippi.

But let’s not forget that COLABORATORY had a bustling weekend scene.

Like Megan Nuttall’s “brief guide to Hillsboro” and Kim Karalekas’ dissertation on “Deb-isms.”

My hope is that you, dear readers, will subscribe to their excellent blogs and maybe buy them a beer at the next Beer and Blog.

On this note, I would like to extend an invitation for all COLAB folks to attend the said event and come chat with one of the most vibrant tech communities in the US.

Friday, 4 to 6 pm, at the Green Dragon Bistro & Brewpub (conveniently located a block away from Grand Central bowling lanes.)

But let’s make it interesting.

I will buy the first 2 COLABORATORY interns who show up at the venue any beverage of your choosing. You don’t even have to be 21 to show up. Of course, you may have to be prepared for the second, third or even fourth pints (that you will unfortunately have to pay yourself), because conversation with the most brilliant minds in Portland can be addicting.

I’ll see you all this Friday. Good night.
